A Center for American Progress (CAP) study reports that the population of U.S. Latinas will increase from 16.4 percent in 2013 to 25.7 percent by 2050.

Latinas, however, still have a “long way to go to fully close racial and ethnic disparities” which places them at risk. In consequence the CAP study suggests, these disparities “should guide our choices to enact sensible policies to unleash the potential of this growing demographic and benefit our economy.

Among key findings:

* Latinas remain underrepresented as business owners, especially among the Fortune 500 companies.
* As of 2013, Latinas owned only about 10 percent of women-owned businesses
* Revenue of Latina-owned businesses grows at about 9.5 percent per year
* Latina continue to lag in educational attainment which undermines their career opportunities
